“If you like classic cars, this is worth a visit.”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

There's a good number of corvettes, both original and restored, here, and they are incredible. There are also some classic VW's here, but they weren't available for viewing when I visited. Volkswagen Fest was the upcoming weekend so they were preparing for that. The shop has good stuff, and the staff are very friendly. Best of all, the admission and parking are absolutely free.

“If you're into corvettes, this is for you!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

This place is great for anyone who is into corvettes. The museum is full of old corvettes, there are also some VW there as well. It isn't an all day trip, my husband and I were in and out in about an hour. If you need someplace to pass some time though, and you want to check out some really nice cars, this is your place!

“What a cool place!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you're into cars and specifically Corvettes (or VW's) this is a fun place to visit. There is an excellent collection of Corvettes and a good exhibit of old air-cooled military vehicles (sorry, no more info on this part). Great gift shop with tons of shirts, hats, and other souvenirs - perfect gifts for the Corvette lover! Definitely worth a stop!
